Quoted by Mendola (1885), probably it arrived in Sicily during the Arab domination, in particular in the territory of Trapani. It was mainly used for the post- phylloxera reconstitution of vineyards in the Marsala area. Very vigorous plant, big leaf, big bunch and berries with weakly pruinose peel, of yellow-green colour with pink-orange hues in the part exposed to the sun. Medium maturity. Generally its grapes are vinified together with other vine varieties. The wine is fine, ready-to-serve, straw-yellow, with a light and pleasant bouquet, a neutral taste, quite harmonious. It’s not suitable to maturing.

Its cultivation is limited to the provinces of Trapani and Agrigento.
